Review SummaryThe water slide was great.Drinks were pricy.Food was good.Wait staff was Great.Although they do not tell you that they do not get all the gratuities spelled out at the embarkation meeting.They are greatly underpaid immigrants in an upscale society of tourists. Rooms ???? Well lets just say if you have 3 kids;A trash compactor has more room than we did. They would be fine for 2 or 3;But not 5. Remember to mark your seats with something personal on the days at sea by 7am or you will be sitting in the cabin.As for the tours spelled out.Greatly over rated $59.00 per person for DUNN's River Falls for example; Family of 5= $300.00. To walk up a water fall;Then go to SEE if you can squeeze in to maybe get a snapshot of a dolphin;That is if some one not weighing 300+ is there first;They don't move.Women and children first;FORGET IT !!! Every person for themselves. If you have kids like I do;Do yourself a favor;Take a DISNEY cruise.
